I have no need for word wrap for most of what I use JOE for. The man page and the HOWTO don't answer this question, so I'm wondering if it might be a bug. I'm running Joe 3.7.in the joerc file does not work correctly. It works (built-in?) for .c files, and I can make it work for .pl files. But files with no extension? Forget it.Without having to resort to the menu each time to turn it off, is there another way to disable word wrap?
I'm not a newbie to Linux, but I'm a newbie to LQ. I've searched the internet for an answer to an issue I'm having with JOE, to no avail.For my editing purposes, I HATE word wrap. I've read the man page extensively and nothing I try works.
To disable word wrap, it says, simply edit the joerc file and place --wordrap in the first column. Done. It works for .pl, and it works for .c (seems to be built in for C). Bottom line, I cannot disable word wrap for all text files, or at least the ones I want to edit. Has anyone solved this?
I am having a problem with long lines when displayed in less. It is difficult to describe but I will try...
I have a text file with some lines longer that 80 characters. If I use less to view this file in an Putty terminal set to an 80 character width, some of the lines wrap. So far so good. If I now use the 'j' or 'arrow down' key to scroll down one line at a time all is ok until I encounter another long line (longer than 80 characters in my example). What I see is only the wrapped portion of the line. The first 80 characters are missing. At this point I can type a ctrl-L to refresh the window and then the long line is wrapped properly. It is only when I am scrolling one line at a time that I see this behavior.
I am not certain that this is a "less problem". However, I only notice it using less. vi works properly. more works properly. I suppose it could also be a Putty, bash or environment problem but I'm not sure.
I've played around with options to less such as -X -r -R without any luck. The systems I am connecting to area all running CentOS if that makes any difference.
Just made a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04.1.It is quite annoying that I have to write the password to the POP3 server, every time i check for mail(It is not the default keyring).How to disable the password check for mail?If it not possible, i have to install another mail program.
The great clock applet shows tasks and appointments from the evolution calendar. That's a great and fast overview of my agenda. But clicking a task of appointment opens a new instance from evolution every time, which is enormously annoying and really destroying productivity. I don't want 15 calendars open, I want the applet to behave like an index. So it should reuse the open instance and bring focus to the clicked appointment or task. How do I disable multiple instances of evolution?
I'm running Gnome on my desktop and going to keep it for now. I've read that Evolution is integrated into Gnome and I cannot remove it without deleterious effects. So, possible to disable it without negative effects? If so how to do that? The only problems I've had relating to Gnome have been Evolution. I'll just copy email links and paste them in Gmail.
In Fedora 12 when ever I log into my desktop Firefox and Evolution are in off line mode when I run them.
I do not use NetworkManager and this is turn off (both service and icon) as this machine has mutable nailed up connections. I am guessing this is what it is as I have laptop with F12 on that has NM turned on and I am not seeing this behaviour.
How to change this behaviour? I is a tad annoying F11 didn't do this.
I have a couple of backup scri ts. I use a rather cumbersome method to backup evolution. I finally realized I can backup evolution easily from its File Menu. Can I do this directly from the command line, so that I can use it in a script?
Sadly I am unable to login to a particular user via the GUI, but that is another thread [URL].
I know that you can create a single backup file of all your emails and settings when you have access to the GUI in Evolution. Since I am unable to login to gnome (or KDE) but I am able to login to the command line by su to the user I would like to create a that evolution backup file. I will be reinstalling Ubuntu.
This is the issue: when replying to someone, the cursor defaults to the beginning of the date line (on date this and this, that and that wrote:...), and I have to press enter twice, and then up-key twice, to bring it to a proper situation where I can start replying.
Today the issue is a bit better, since I am using GVIM for editing, so I can just press O (or make any other good mapping for my needs), but I am using GVIM only for English emails (since with Hebrew it is not really... hmm... useful, still), so the problem remains.
I know it is a very "little" issue - but come on, 9 years and no solution?!
In general, it would be nice to allow one to customize completely the "date line"; for example, to allow one to decide that his reply line will begin like this:
(two empty lines, after the cursor!) ===== Am Sonntag, den 09.05.2010, 13:04 schrieb Asaf Chertkoff: > ... > ...
Bios is a good recommendation but will that affect the fan speed? I know about the acpi=off option, this does not work properly- even on suse. Maybe noapic would work better? Really is there a cover all command line instruction (for all distros) to turn the annoying thing off? Main problem occurs when watching the telly and the screensaver kicks in, with suze it turns the sound off as well, even after you have re-entered the password
I have Fedora 14 with minimal installation (without graphical interface and so on) and the application I've been working needs to be initialized on boot up. So, I need to disable the login prompt (and password) by command line. How can I do it? I've seen by GUI, but with command line nothing...
Currently all text lines which are written as output into a terminal window are automatically wrapped at the right border into the next line.How can I disable this permanently?In case when a line is longer than a terminal window I want to scroll horizontally to see the remaining line.
I have installed opensuse on VirutalBox , during installation I said "yes" to autologin as normal user.After installation and restart , it shows follwing message "Logging in Laks ...Cannot enter home directory . using /"I can login as single user by passing "single " in grub.
After installing Evolution, the date format for entering birthdays was MDY. I edited the preferences and see under contacts it was set to "Use locale default" (which it identifies correctly, but should therefore have been using DMY).
I changed the format to a preset item in the drop-down selection to force it to %d.%m.%y %H:%M:%S which didn't change the birthday field behaviour. Have done the same in Calendar and Tasks, still no change.
if/where you can change the date format for the Birthday field in contacts in Evolution?
I am handling email with evolution 2.28.3, on 10.04.2 LTS. It is up to date. I do not wish to use "ubuntu one", so I removed it by following the instructions on their launchpad page. However, I still cannot stop evolution trying to use "ubuntu one". For example if I R-click an address in evolution and choose Add to address book, it defaults to adding it to "ubuntu one", not my local address book which I have to select every time.
I have been through all the configuration options in evolution, and de-selected "ubuntu one" wherever I see it. Evolution is still defaulting to saving addresses to "ubuntu one".
Upgraded to 11.04 a few weeks ago and after some tweaking found a way to adjust to the Unity shell. When I initially upgraded Im certain that when Evolution alerted me of an upcoming event, that the mail alert icon on the top panel would change to indicate the pending event. However, for the last few days Ive noticed that when Evolution alerts trigger I see the alert bubble, which quickly fades, but the mail alert icon does not change. If Im not right at my workstation when the alert triggers its easy to miss upcoming events. I googled around for a solution, but found nothing or missed it.
How can I make the less utility in Linux not wrap lines?
Long version: Often I need to view huge CSV files using less with hundreds of columns. I frequently only care about the first couple columns. However, word wrap causes one line to become several lines even on wide-screen monitors.
Is there any equivalent for Linux to the "Edgeless" software for Windows that lets the mouse pointer wrap around from one screen edge to the opposite edge? That is, if you move the pointer off the screen to the right, it comes back in on the left side.
Abiword is splitting words at the end of sentences. If I go to the end of the line and nudge the word, it will wrap but I get an extra space. I can usually delete the space. Sometime, the word will wrap correctly if I continue typing but this is not the typical case.
I know this is not a problem with OpenOffice but I don't want to install 70MB of program just to get a simple word processor.
I am trying the wrap feature for the first time. I followed the instruction as mentioned in this link URl...but I am getting an error saying "undefine reference to __wrap_malloc.I followed all the steps, but the post was a decade old, I am sure something has changed? or am I missing something.
Using ubuntu 10.04 32-bit.I would like to disable or remap (preferably) the F11 key action which toggles full-screen mode.Disabling the feature has no effect. I can add a shortcut say mod4-F11 and that shortcut then becomes effective, but the F11 action remains.
